BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?



I am in Iceland, where a body has been found at the body of a draining lake. There seems to be some connection between the body and the cold war activity during the 1960s. (The Draining Lake, Arnaldur Indridason)

Don't forget that we are voting here tomorrow on the latest Bookword in our game after taking suggestions at Sueys.

Oooh, I'd never heard of that book, but it sounds intriguing.

I'm in Zimbabwe (House of Stone). Or I guess I should say I'm in Rhodesia, because it's only 1970.

Just left Oxfordshire where I'd been spending weekends at a large country manor with old college friends. The group dynamic was very emotionally charged and things will never be the same again. (The House at Midnight by Lucie Whitehouse)
